Posted on 04/28/2012 9:11:56 AM PDT by izzatzo
The American Action Network, a super-PAC that backs establishment Republicans, has pulled out of Indiana's Senate race, the latest bad omen for Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.).
"We've decided we're going to let this race play out," AAN spokesman Dan Conston told The Hill Friday evening.

I’m thinking about emailing Lugar a picture of the “Welcome to Indiana” sign... just to refresh his memory. :-)
Taking back the Senate, one RINO at a time.
I love RINO scalp!
"And I want my scalps."
no need, he’s never going back again. He’ll be a lobbyist living in dc and poking his head up to badmouth conservatives on tv and serve on commissions set up by liberals to be “bipartisan”. Maybe he and Simpson will be roomies.
Tony Stewart (the NASCAR driver) is more of a HOOSIER then Lugar is!!
This RINO PAC, packed their bags quickly after Palin endorsed
Mourdock. Was it because of Palin’s endorsement? Who knows.
But Palin’s endorsement BEFORE this RINO PAC called it quits, appears to be another great timed endorsement.
Her endorsement and the RINO PAC retreat on the same day,
double whammy’s against Lugar could spell his doom.
We shall soon see who carries more weight in Indiana.
Conservatives or McCain, Lugar and Daniels.
When was the last time Lugar lived in IN? Did the asshole even live there in the past?
You’re absolutely right. Sadly, our founding fathers didn’t anticipate the career politician.
It’s hard to tell with the token residences many seem to keep (if I remember right, Evan Bayh claimed his small office space as his Indiana residence for years). According to the Mourdock campaign, he hasn’t lived here in 35 years. Interestingly, I haven’t seen any Lugar ads disputing that claim.
I’ll even go one farther and give Jeff Gordon more of a claim on Hoosier-hood than Lugar! Lol!
The sad thing is, during the Reagan years, Lugar was a realiable conservative vote in the Senate.
Unfortunately, far too many politicians think that election to office isn’t a unique honor that gives them a short window where they have an opportunity to do some good. Instead they think their office is a lifetime appointment to rule over those who lack their wisdom to see the ‘big picture’. In Lugar’s case, he has served on past the point where he has any real connection at all to his constituents. He could have rode off into the sunset in the mid-90s with the appreciation of a grateful public. Instead he will have to chased from office like a pathetic old despot.
The end is near. Its time to stop having old nice guys who want to be thought of fondly by liberals using their elected offices like gold plated retirement homes.
“...pathetic old despot.”
Term limits would help in that regard, it certainly wouldn’t hurt to at least try term limits. IMHO, the Founders failed in that respect.
